Like a pearl, until it has given the final touch to shine like those beautiful ones we wear, it wont look the same as its origin. until then, no one recognise its real value. Often what happens is, the valuables are hidden or not recognised by others. It is the same with the history of any country. No one will be interested in it until, it has given any importance. Now, it’s the time for Scotland to dust out its history, which has for too long been hidden in a sort of national attic. From 17 to 30 November, Scotland celebrates it’s history festival.
Scotland History now shines up and is given place in glorious shops windows. If you are a history buff, this is the best chance to turn those less historically well-endowed parts of the world green with envy. To paraphrase Oscar Wilde, Scotland has produced more history that it can domestically consume, and to quote Max Bialystock, if you’ve got it, just flaunt it.
The event has got a fabulous treasure just waiting to be rediscovered, from the joyous ribaldry of a 16th century poetic slanging match to an exploration of the food and drink the country have consumed over the centuries. The organisers even have got a huge historical canvas to clean and evaluate with the help of the most brilliant historians.
Scotland’s history festival was created to bring the history out into the streets. The event aims to bring the history made by Scotland’s people closer to Scotland’s people.
